         16th International Workshop on OpenMP

                    IWOMP 2020

         September 23-25, 2020 
         Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC)
         Austin, TX  USA

         Paper Deadline: April 24   (check updates @website)

The International Workshop on OpenMP (IWOMP) is an annual workshop dedicated to the promotion and advancement of all aspects of parallel programming with OpenMP. It is the premier forum to present and to discuss issues, trends, recent research ideas, and results related to parallel programming with OpenMP. We solicit quality submissions of unpublished technical papers that detail innovative, original research and development related to OpenMP.


As computing hardware has evolved from simple core reproduction to advanced SIMD units, deeper memories, and heterogeneous computing, OpenMP has also evolved and extended its application interface to harness new capabilities throughout the spectrum of hardware advances. New features and extensions of the OpenMP 5.0 interface have taken major steps to provide control of the parallelism within the paradigms and complexity of modern C/C++ and Fortran programming languages. OpenMP enhancements range from operational aspects deep within the vector execution units, up through the cores and memory, and beyond, to offloading across accelerator devices.  

Advances in technologies, such as multi-core processors and OpenMP devices (accelerators such as GPGPUs, DSPs or FPGAs), Multiprocessor Systems on a Chip (MPSoCs), and recent developments in OpenMP itself (e.g., metadirectives and variants for selecting device- and architecture-specific directives) present new opportunities and challenges for software and hardware developers. Recent advances in the C, C++ and Fortran base languages also offer interesting opportunities and challenges to the OpenMP programming model. 


All topics related to parallelism in OpenMP are of interest, including 

    OpenMP Specific:

  * Vectorization
  * Offloading to Devices
  * Memory Model
  * Memory Policies (Affinity) and Management
  * Tasking
  * Affinity
  * Runtime Environment
  * Performance Analysis and Modeling 
  * Tools
  * Proposed OpenMP Extensions
  * OpenMP Applications in Any Domain 
    (scientific and numerical computations, video games, computer graphics, 
    multimedia, information retrieval, optimization, text processing, 
    data mining, finance, signal and image processing and machine learning).

IWOMP 2020 solicits submissions in the areas above as well as ones that have adapted OpenMP to other models of parallelism, such as event loops or real-time processing.

Submitted papers for review should be limited to 12 pages (not counting references).  The IWOMP 2020 proceedings will be published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.  

Hope to see y'all in Austin this fall!

General Chair, Kent Milfeld (TACC)
Program Chairs, Bronis de Supinski (LLNL) and Lars Koesterke (TACC)
